Be an information activist

Donate to The Feminist Institute to help us infill the cultural record from a feminist perspective.

A scan is more than just a scan. Within all sorts of boxes, there are feminist histories waiting to be shared. By adopting a box, you are enabling The Feminist Institute to prioritize the preservation of feminist archives and the cultural histories they represent.

Prioritize Feminist Legacy-Building

Supporting The Feminist Institute allows our team to safeguard feminist legacies through partnerships with notable feminists, organizations, and collecting institutions and provide digital access to archival materials within the TFI Digital Archive.

Our Impact

The Feminist Institute works with our partners to radicalize access to feminist archives in multiple ways. Some initiatives we’ve worked on this year include:

  • Partnering with The New York Public Library (NYPL) to digitize feminist holdings for inclusion in the TFI Digital Archive and NYPL Digital Collections.

  • Working with feminist trading card company, supersisters, on rehoming 15 boxes of materials in archival housing and digitizing over 500 items for the TFI Digital Archive, including correspondence with Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, and Maya Angelou.

  • Collaborating with A.I.R. Gallery on the digital exhibition series, A.I.R.: The First 25 Years, celebrating the gallery’s history through archival storytelling.

  • Sponsoring research grants for Hunter College M.A. in Art History students to explore feminist histories and contribute their findings to TFI’s digital exhibitions.

  • Helping notable organizations, such as Global Fund for Women, archive websites and other digital-only documentation.

The Feminist Institute is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our EIN is 82-1159850. Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
